John would be pleased to know I kept all his Army letters of the 1960's. He always smiled and took time to listen. He was a good dancer too. We named two of our sons John after John and his father. No one expected him to pass away as this young age. Sadly missed by your family, cousins and friends.

I knew John long ago from working on Wright Patterson Air Force Base, and found that he was a happy guy who always brightened up the day. I met John at the local MacDonalds in Fairborn, enjoyed all his stories of the day. He will surely be missed by all his friends.
